hi, im nicole from west virginia and im 29 years old. ive always struggled with my weight. i started getting heavy when i was 8. in high school they called me rosie the truck driver because i looked like rosie odonnel and they thought i was going to grow up to be a truck driver. they made up a song and everything. how nice!!

I have had 2 children and had complications with both. My 1st pregnancy I went from a size 10 to a size 24. i was on bed rest from the 3rd month till the end. Talk about depressing on top of that I gained almost as much with my second daughter and both were c-sections so ive lost alot of stomach muscle and gained an unsightful pooch. i kept saying i cant lose this weight. well guess what.... i wasnt trying, duh!! i had a serious addiction to diet pills. i also occasionally took pain pills until my mom died from an overdose then it kinda hit home!!

i recently went on vacation with my family to myrtle beach - DEPRESSING! i felt so stupid going on the beach in a bathing suit. even though no one really cares you always feel like everyone is pointing and staring. it almost took away from the fun and thats just not fair!! I felt gross and im over it!!

i want to be able to get into a size 10 again (without greasing myself down or wearing gurdles that cut off my circulation!). lol!

i feel like my relationships with my kids and my boyfriend will get better if im thinner too. my mom passed away when i was 26 and i have no dad or siblings so ive kind of had a reality check in the last couple of years! i really dont want to die young and im all together just sick of being FAT!!!

right now im not able to wear the cute girly clothes that i want to wear and would show off my personality and a hot body too!!! all i really wear are jeans with a t-shirt or a hoodie. i wore some really cute dresses this summer but i couldnt help but think they wouldve been way cuter on someone else! i know that sounds horrible but its all about being honest right?

anyway, i will be happy and feel like myself again!!!

****also i saw alot of other spark pages where people were tracking their goal weights below. maybe if i do that it will come off faster, lol! here goes!!

goal weight 195-
goal weight 185-
goal weight 175-
goal weight 165-
goal weight 155-
***target goal weight*** 150-

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let them go. Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right. You will believe lies so that you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." -Marilyn Monroe

"Imperfection is beauty, maddness is genius, and it's better to be absolutely rediculous than absolutely boring."
-- Marilyn Monroe

"Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle." --Marilyn Monroe

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
- Dr. Suess

"I never regret anything because every little detail of your life is what made you into who you are in the end."

"Life isn't like a bowl of cherries or peaches, it's more like a jar of Jalapenos -- what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow....."

My Goals:
i really want to get down to 150 or at least a size 10. i have to be realistic ive had 2 kids so i may not be able to get to where i was in high school but i am doing this for myself and because i want to go to regular stores and try on all those girly girly clothes and have them fit!!!

My Program:
i am using the nutrition tracker to keep a better eye on what i shove in my face!! & i have been doing the jillian michaels 30 day shred where you lose 20 lbs in 30 days. at 1st i was so sore but it is so much easier already. ill tell ya what she kicks my a**! so far ive lost 4 lbs and i can tell in my face a little already - so exciting!!

Personal Information:
my name is nicole and i live near wheeling in wv. lucky me! i am 29 yrs old with 2 daughters and a boyfriend who ive lived with for 5 yrs. just not ready to do the whole marraige thing yet. maybe ill have a different view on life when i lose this weight!

Other Information:
ive been heavy since around age 8. i had a step dad that beat me up for eating so i turned to bulimia from age 15-19 and lost weight - just the super unhealthy way! Then i ended up pregnant at age 20 and had a ton of complications and went from a size 10 - 24. i just got depressed and stuck in a rut. now im really ready for a positive spin on my life! i may even quit smoking!

    Ok, so it will be a year in Oct. and I have yet to lose these 40lbs. Is this normal for someone to make all these changes and still keep the same weight. I think there has been a little change in inches but I want the scale to tell me. lol. Does that sound funny?

    Hey, sorry it took me so long to get back to ya! I'm not on here much these days. Thanks for the congrats! Yeah I'm excited we have been trying for a long time. Lindsey is really excited she talks to my belly and gives it kisses. How is everything with you? I'm not sure what happened to Tara, I miss talking to her. Well take care!
